Bradley Anderson



A Californian by birth, raised in Toronto, schooled in the Midwest, Brad moved to New York after earning his MFA in acting from the University of Iowa. In New York, Brad quickly immersed himself in the world of improv, training at the People's Improv Theater, UCB, and the Magnet. He performed on a house team at the PIT for three and half years, and continues to drop in to perform several times a month. During his time at the PIT, he created and produced the "IndiePendence Day  Festival," which continues to build audience and draw revenue for the theater to this day.

Finding that he missed the theater, Brad joined the Bats at the Flea, where he performed in the premieres of Tommy Smith's  WHITE HOT, SARAH FLOOD in SALEM  MASS, and the weekly episodic event #SERIALS. From the Flea, he moved onto the Ensemble Studio Theater, where he premiered Clare Barron's SOLAR PLEXUS, Lucy Teitler's ENGAGEMENTS, and countless short plays by members of EST's resident writer's group Youngblood. Passionate about theater and new work, Brad has worked with some of the hottest playwrights in New York, including Rob Askins, Clare Barron, Chiara Atik, Tommy Smith,  Eric Dufault, Mary Hamilton, Sam Hunter, and Jen Silverman.

Brad continues to build his resume as a producer, having most notably produced WOMEN by Chiara Atik. Named "HighBrow/Brilliant" in New York Magazine's approval matrix, and called "Hilarious" by Vulture, the show had sold out runs in both New York and LA.  It went on to win best Comedy and Top of Fringe at the Hollywood Fringe festival. Up next: a super-secret, site-specific project at a Carriage house in the West Village.

Now a contented resident of Brooklyn, Brad is a lover of backyard hangouts and bike riding. He gets his rage out at his weekly boxing training.
